Emma Watson is set to be busy this summer, starring in The Perks of Being a Wallflower and the based-on-true events flick The Bling Ring. In TBR Emma plays a bad girl with sticky fingers, Nicki, based on real-life Alexis Neiers (a little bit of a change from playing the bookwormish wizardry student for so long!). The story is based on a group of teens who broke into to celebrities houses and stole thousands of dollars worth of goods in 2010. Some celebs they hit up include Shia LeBoeuf, Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton!
Emma recently tweeted a pic of herself in character, saying: “Twitterers meet Nicki, Nicki meet twitterers : ) @blingringmovie"
Alexis has been working with director Sophia Coppola and seeing the pic jokingly replied: "Emma Watson in character clothing an make up to look like me..close but I’ve never&would never wear that ” and to make sure no one took it the wrong way, added "“No no no.It has been a blessing to work with Mrs Coppola&I’m still in shock that Emma is playing me I am sure she will be fantastic.Sillies.”
